Obama: Mitt Fact-Checked By Own Campaign!


But after he said that, then he backtracked and said, no, wait, at least I'll make sure to cover folks with pre-existing conditions. And then I explained, well, actually, your plan doesn't do that. And then his campaign had to come out and say, actually, that's not true, our plan wouldn't do that. So Governor Romney was fact-checked by his own campaign. That's rough. That's rough.

TPM self-promo here, but it was our Evan McMorris-Santoro who pressed the Romney camp on this point in the spin room after the debate and got the confirmation that Romney's plan would not in fact cover pre-existing conditions.
